Product Description

Mancala Solid Wood with colorful Playing Pieces

Amazon.com

This might be the sturdiest game you'll ever own. This Mancala game in a cardboard sleeve has a solid oak playing board that unfolds to reveal the classic stone-moving game. Complete instructions are included as well as 48 pretty playing pieces that look a little like flattened marbles. The game's simplicity makes it a breeze even for children to learn, while the wealth of player options keeps it challenging for older players. Prepare kids for more complex abstract strategy games with this beautiful yet inexpensive Mancala set. --Rob Lightner

The return will be quick and easy, hopefully. The quality of this item is terrible. After opening the board, I was overwhelmed with sadness. I am a huge fan of the game Mancala, so for them to give me this was purely offensive. How dare you send me this clown scale, cartoon constructed piece of crap. The wells are too small to hold the beads, and they are inconsistent in size. It is not in the same scale as they show in the photograph. One of the beads was chipped, and could have cut a finger. The beads are WAY too big; you're supposed to start with 4 beads in each well, but they can barely hold that many, and the point of the game is to add more beads to the wells. The beads are too big to even close the board, I have no idea how they ever were able to do it. It shouldn't take a trial and error period of over twenty minutes to close the board. I never even succeeded, I put them in their own bag when I re-packaged the item.

Mancala is one of the most popular board games in the world, and one of the oldest; game boards have been found in Egypt dating back to 1400 B.C. It's a relatively simple game for two players that only requires counting, and it's very fun, for both kids and adults.

This is a great price for a real wooden game board with glass pieces. It's extremely portable, making it a great game for backseat travel or airplanes. Sick and tired of playing Candyland with your 6-year-old? Grab this game and you'll both have fun!

I didn't buy my Mancala game from Amazon, but I did buy one this past Saturday (May 16, 2009) from another retailer. The manufacturer is Cardinal Industries, same as the version Amazon is selling.

The picture on my Mancala box looked just like the one on Amazon - brightly colored glass pieces, etc. HOWEVER, when I opened the game, instead of the glass "gemstones", there were ROCKS inside. The same kind of small, pea-gravel sized rocks I can pick up in my driveway.

The directions that came in the box also talk about "gemstones". So the outside of the box, and the description in the directions didn't match what was actually inside the box.

I went to the Cardinal Industries website, and on the website, the picture on the version of Mancala being sold on there shows rocks, instead of the glass pebbles. So, apparently, they have changed their product, but it seems that on the production line, some of the ones still being created for, and distributed to, various retailers have the WRONG PICTURE on the outside.

I feel this is misleading, and I believe Cardinal Industries should be charging a lesser price, since they are not providing the glass pebbles, but rather, pea gravel.

I have asked the retailer I bought mine from to refund my money. I asked for the refund, because they couldn't exchange it.....other boxes they opened up had the same pea gravel inside, even though the outside of the box showed the brightly-colored glass gemstones.

Again, I did not buy mine on Amazon, but I'm posting this warning here so that other people can watch out for rocks in their Mancala game, instead of what they actually paid for.....the glass "gemstones" pictured on the box, and described in the directions.

A Kid's Review on December 24, 2005
I recently was in "The Nutkracker" and was stuck at shows and rehersals for hours in a little, noisy basement of a theatre...not so fun. One of my friends had this Mancala game and EVERYONE wanted to play it. We set up a little system where two people would play, another would play winner, someone would play that winner,And so on and so on. It was a LOT OF FUN!! We were never bored of it and had so much fun that after the Nutcracker shows were over I had to buy a board for myself, I love this game!!!

As mentioned elsewhere, this does not come in a tin sleeve; it's merely cardboard. That's definitely going to affect its long-term durability. A disappointing bit of misleading marketing from Amazon on this one.

People have told me they love the extra durability of the metal storage tin for this Mancala game, so I recently ordered this specific version from Amazon. I ordered this from the Are You Game merchant, expecting it to come in the metal tin as described. The version they currently stock does NOT come in the metal tin. It comes in a cardboard cover. If you are looking for the metal cover, I recommend double checking what they have in stock before hand.

This is cheap and nice. It's great that it's wood and not plastic -- and the pieces are good looking little marble-like things. I bought a wood chess board on Amazon recently and it was only $20. That's what motivated me to look for and find this.

Great game, cheap, and with nice looking natural material.

A Kid's Review on August 6, 2000
My friend got this game for her birthday and we play it everyday! This game has never gotten boring and the medal case is very durable. Glass stones come with it and they aren't too small or too big. It's a great game and I would recomend this one for younger kids. Now I wish it was in stock so I could get it, too!
